reading list of research into OSS development

Introduces a modification to Softgoal Interdependency Graph (SIG) models to study software ecosystem (SECO) health. Other than the introduction of terms and a list of the practicies from KDE.

Proposes a maturity model for FLOSS communities. The paper suggests that more "traditional" metrics based approaches to studying FLOSS communities do not by themselves provide guidance regarding opportunities for improvement which is of use to FLOSS community managers. TODO: pick up reading from page 40

Possible solutions to currently identified problems with Kubernetes governance

PROBLEM: The structure of the project is opaque to newcomers

  • project structure added to governance repository under Kubernetes GitHub organization
  • create "Front Desk" inspired by Debian Project to welcome new contributors
  • create mentorship requirement in contributor ladder

PROBLEM: There is no clear technical escalation path / procedure

  • adopt RFC process inspired by Rust langage governance
  • create technical steering committee bootstrapped from "top level OWNERS" as penultimate arbiters with power vested in Kubernetes community to make all final decisions
  • affirm decision by technical steering committee in case inability of community to make decision
  • devolve primary decision making and consensus building authority to SIGs

Notes on Open Source Governance Models

Node.js Foundation

  • Healthy Open Source
    • explicit goal to be a lightweight process
    • concrete ability to scale to hundreds of contributors
    • good fundamental goals
      • transparency
      • participation
      • efficacy
    • ecosystem projects encouraged but not required to adopt foundation governance templates
  • creation of projects under TSC explicity delegates authority from TSC to project TC
